More than 10 years ago Elena heard about the Tara dance and was in touch with the adventures of Tara Dhatu through its newsletter emails. She decided to celebrate one special birthday and attended the Tara Mandala with Prema and Anahata in Winston Salem, North Carolina. She was inspired to learn to teach the dance and went to the Tara Camp on Kauai. The Tara Retreat was a wonderful experience and she committed to offer the Tara Dance every full moon. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, and when the weather is nice she has a loyal group join her in Prospect Park or,when the weather is not so accommodating, at Patsy’s house, one of the Tara dancers. She often travels to Barcelona, Spain, the land of her birth, and has started initiating her friends there in the joys of Tara’s Dance.
